Rg54g3 router problem

When the router is plugged in like it usually is, it acts as like a block to the internet. this started occurring after the house got hit by lightning. when i unplug the ethernet from the router directly to my computer, i can connect to the internet. but if the ethernet is run through the router i cant connect to the internet but my computer says im at 100.0 mbps with no internet. all of the lights on the router shows that it is fine but cant get no sign of a connection to the web. i think the router might be damaged from the lightning. ANY 1 have a suggestion!

Lightning seems to have zapped the Ethernet port on the Modem side, the WAN port, this is quite common with telephone and cable line surges. 
Consider your router smoked.

RG54G3 won't connect wirelessly or through ethernet.


Well this could be a number of problems but the most popular cause of this problem is out-of-date firmware.

If you visit the manufacturers website and download the firmware it should solve the problem but can't be sure.

The instructions of how to get the firmware update onto the router should be on the website, if not, type your routers IP address into the internet browser e.g. internet explorer, log-in and it should be pretty straight forward from there.

Hi I have a MSI RG54G3 ROUTER could someone tel me where the WEP number is or where can i obtain one Please can you help


Take an Ethernet cable, and connect one computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD and press ENTER
Type IPCONFIG and press ENTER
Look for a line of output like:
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 264.468.326.124
Start Internet Explorer
Type http://264.468.326.124 and press ENTER
Login to the Router (ID/password required)
Run the Wireless Networking Setup Wizard,
and create an SSID and create a WEP-key.

My wired pc keeps discconecting from internet


Check for wire loose connection and then any time setting for your dhcp connection. If they are ok check your network connectivity do as follows.

Startup
run
type cmd
at the prompt type ping <your router ip address> -t
kepp watching the reply

use your computer as normally and check when it gets disconnect by watching above

may be some corrupted program send packets in an un usual rate (it can be virus/trojan) so the router blocks those port and your computer disconnect from the network.

Rather from all the above change the PCI Network adapter replace with a new network card.

Wireless conncection


depending on who your ISP is, you need an ethernet cable coming from the modem into the WAN/Internet port on back of router. Once that is in you can try to connect wirelessly using the settings your router is setup for :

SSID/network name
encryption type
encryption key/passkey/passphrase
-- this part is dependent on above setting
wireless channel

Unplugged per cable company instructions & not won't connect


The configuration of your cables is correct, as long as your modem is connected to the 'internet' port on your router. You must unplug the power cord from the back of your modem and plug it back in so that the modem recognizes the router. After doing this you should be able to get to the internet.

The modem has a security feature that only recognizes one physical address. When you were plugged directly into your pc, it had the pc's physical address saved in its memory. When you reconnected to the router, the modem blocked the router's access to the internet because the physical address of the router did not match the physical address that was saved in memory.

Router connection


Hiya, either the seetings on the router fiewall have changed, or the shock has damaged the circuit board somehow, the speed that the computer says its connected to is whats called LOCAL only, meaning you are connected at that speed to the router only, circuit boards do funny things when shocked, have you tried another router? Id put my money on the board being fried.
